Adam and Chuck are very excited to interview one of the first ladies of webcomics. Shaenon Garrity is the pioneering creator of two major webcomic series (and several other littler ones) Narbonic and Skin Horse, both expertly combine daily gag humor with long-form epic storytelling. Shaenon started making webcomics in the year 2000, has written for Marvel, and is intimately involved with San Francisco’s Cartoon Art Museum. She is also a new parent and Chuck postulates that she may, in fact, be the first and only mother to make webcomics.
You may notice some squeaky, chirping noises. They were made by Shaenon’s parrakeet, and are not, in fact, the sounds that Adam Prosser makes when he moves his head. You might also think that the crashing and banging you hear later in the episode is being caused Shaenon’s toddler son, but that actually IS Adam, trying to escape from the small commode in which Chuck keeps him imprisoned.
Adam’s digressions range as far and wide as ElfQuest, his genuine fear of the Rancor, and Sean the Sheep.
In which webcomic creators Chuck Whelon and Adam Prosser try to establish themselves as the Masters and Johnson of webcomics. Chuck pontificates on his lofty goals for the podcast and names a bunch of people he’d like to get on the show, then he tries to interview Adam. Adam veers wildly off topic as he expounds on his encyclopedic knowledge of comics and 1980s cartoon shows. Lastly, since the show has already overrun, Adam only briefly interviews Chuck, who will definitely purchase a better microphone before recording the next episode.
What with making his monthly sales quotas and homeschooling his kids, Pewfell’s life is no longer his own. Could popular children’s entertainer StrangeBlob NoPants be the answer to all his problems?!?
Yes, folks, Pewfell#24 is done and posted! Right now it’s exclusively available as a PDF download on DriveThruComics.com. And what is more, I have a special coupon code for you to get a copy during the month of July for half-off. That’s 99¢, to you!!
While on vacation in Mendocino County last week, I was delighted to discover a fantastic new game store in Fort Bragg called “BlaqkDoor”. It is a very modern start-of-the-art game and comic shop with an excellent selection of the latest boardgames, comics, video games and collectibles.
The staff were all super friendly and helpful, and the owner, Scott, is a very likable guy, who I chatted to for ages about my favorite subjects: boardgames & comics.
I was glad to see he had a copy of Minion Games’ “Manhattan Project” on his shelves, but he obviously hadn’t heard about such other gems as “Those Pesky Humans”, “Tahiti”, “Grave Business”, “Nile” or “Battle Merchants”, not to mention the greatest boardgames of all time: “Legitimacy”. So, I rectified that fact by chewing his ear off for half-an-hour on the subject of how those all are far superior titles from the same publisher!
Anyway, now you have no excuse at all not to go to the Mendocino coast for you next weekend mini-break.
